Minecraft’s AllTheItems mod takes Minecraft back to an earlier version of the game – or it appears to, at least. While it doesn’t make any real changes to Minecraft, there is one serious core gameplay change which players who have been enjoying Minecraft for years will probably view through a nostalgic lens. Normally when you’re mining, chopping wood or breaking other blocks, all blocks of a similar type lump together so there isn’t a huge mess everywhere. This mod makes it so single blocks stay single blocks and don’t combine like that, so you have broken blocks everywhere after just a few minutes of work.
Why would anyone want this? Well, the sounds are one reason. Today, once you’re done mining a huge vein of coal or doing some other grueling job, you usually hear the sound of items being picked up once for every stack of blocks you find. With AllTheItems mod installed, you’ll hear 64 pickup sounds when picking up a stack of 64 coals, or cobblestone, or whatever else it is you’ve been farming. It seems like a relatively minor plus and it really is, but since AllTheItems only makes minor changes to Minecraft anyhow, this is in line with the spirit of the mod.
The best part about this feature is it can be toggled anytime you like with a simple command. Just type /toggleitemgrouping while in game and it is as if you’ve turned off the mod, just like that. You can turn it back on using the same command again, too. So, if you’re sick of all the mods that add a mountain of content to Minecraft, or you’re an old-school player looking for a game that looks and sounds more like what you fell in love with years ago, the AllTheItems mod is one you should check out more closely.
